Can I expect to run Final Cut Studio eventually?
I'm having limited basic success with the Hazard 10.5.6 package running on my ASUS P5N-E SLI Mother board w/Core 2 Duo 2.6GHz and MSI RX2600Pro (ATI Radeon 2600 PCI-E 512mB). All new 1 year ago and very good quality, no cheap $100 graphics cards here.
Almost everything seems to work but its more sluggish that my 7 year old Mac G4 w/ 3 year old graphic card upgrade.
What is missing in the graphics support that allows my 7 year old G4 to appear to run better that Hazard on my Core 2 Duo with fully accellerater graphic support?
I tried to install FCStudio 2 and it said my "mac" wouldn't support it. It said I had "no" vram. I have 512 megs of vram. Does anyone know of a distribution of OSX86 that will fully support graphic acceleration, return features like dual display at 1680x1050? I don't mind buying a different graphics card if it's fully supported and fully accelerated.
Ultimately, running FCStudio is my ONLY reason for having a Mac at all. I'd just assume to stick with my PC except I edit video with FCPro and build DVDs with DVDSPro. I would love to move my editing over to the PC IF it was faster and just as stable. I really don't want to buy another Mac!!!
